Im not glasshopper, wish I had the knowledge he possesses though but I'm going with early 1900's -1925??? with bottle #1&3 and mid 1900's with the middle bottle, which looks like a creamer bottle. Glasshopper im sure has much more info though, these are just guesses Nice digs! Looks like your getting into older bottles, especially with the applied top (bottle #3)...happy hunting out there!

Believe the jar type is possible some kind of pickle jar. The amount of bubbles is making me question its age. The bottom bottle may have been a medicine bottle or a flavoring extract bottle, but with no embossing, it would have had a paper label. But the seam looks like it stops at the shoulder, meaning the top was applied seperately. Giving a good indication its right around the turn of the 20th century. Keep digging, it certainly looks to have potential!
